Clinical pharmacology and therapeutics. ISSN 1532-6535; 0009-9236


Strong scientific rationale exists for conducting clinical pharmacology studies in target populations because local factors such as genetics, environment, co-morbidities and diet can affect variability in drug responses. However, clinical pharmacology studies are not widely conducted in sub-Saharan Africa, in part due to limitations in technical expertise and infrastructure. Since 2012, a novel public-private partnership model involving research institutions and a pharmaceutical company has been applied to developing increased capability for clinical pharmacology research in multiple African countries.
